KLM B777-300ER Landing in a Tropical Storm: KL809 Flight Review Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta

Watch the mighty Boeing 777-300ER go against the wrath of Mother Nature during landing in a tropical storm in this flight review of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flight KL809 from Kuala Lumpur to Jakarta!

It started with a very pleasant experience at Kuala Lumpur International Airport which continued with a very lovely flight onboard KLM’s Boeing 777-306/ER, PH-BVD in SkyTeam livery.

The cabin crew are very cheerful and warm, and I enjoyed my movie on the entertainment system. The meal served is a rather large vegetarian samosa, with a choice of drink.

Things escalated very quickly with a seemingly smooth routine flight transformed into a rather scary landing in a tropical thunderstorm!

The sky grew very dark and gloomy and streaks of lightning can be seen during the landing. Thanks to the KLM crew, the aircraft landed safely in Soekarno-Hatta International Airport, Jakarta.
